Matthew Douglas

Matthew Douglas Gibbs was born on January 12, 2006 and was 8lbs. 3oz. at one week early.  He is still a big boy and can eat meat like no other!  His middle name is my grandfather’s name.  Matthew is the first boy in 3 generations on my mom’s side, so my grandfather (PopPop) has been surrounded by girls his whole life.  Besides that fact, my PopPop is a WWII veteran and exemplifies everything we admire about that generation of men.  He is 93 years old and he and Matthew are two peas in a pod.  They even play catch together!  As a five year old boy, he is into the usual-dinosaurs, Star Wars, sports, and building anything.  Fortunately for me, having no experience with boys, he also has a sensitive side.  He loves his mama and is all about the justice.  Holy cow!  Don’t mess with the rules in our house.  A strong sense of justice and the memory of an elephant makes him quite the force to be reckoned with.  He is such a joy to watch.  He loves school, especially math.  He is so fun to teach!  Everything is interesting and new to him which inspires me daily.
